This hostel is fantastic!!! The staff is super friendly and really knowledgeable about all of the great things to do (and eat!) in Tofino. The hostel has a spectacular great room with fireplace view overlooking the sound. Clean, comfortable quiet sleep. I can't recommend this place enough...

The hostel is great. Clean. Cozy. Nice kitchen. But some of the staff employees are quite odd, untrustful, dishonest and disrespectful. Lock up your bags with a secure lock. They are extremely curious.

Stayed here in September for 1 night. There was five of us so we got a room all together. Staff were really nice & we got free drink vouchers for the seafood restaurant right by it (went there & the food was awesome). The hostel was clean, the common room had really nice views of the ocean & the whole...

I stayed here in October for a couple of nights and was very impressed with how well run the place is. Favourite part of my stay were the complimentary muffins in the morning, yummm. The rooms were clean and same with the rest of the hostel. The employees were all friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend to others on a...

My girlfriend and I stayed at HI Tofino in a double room for two nights and had a great time. The room and all facilities were very clean and well equipped and the staff - especially Logan and Lorraine - were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They even made a tray of muffins for the guests in the morning. Highly recommended!

Stayed here 3 nights in high season. Booked in advance as it's popular. Staff welcoming & knowledgeable. We had family room at back so no views. Amazing views at front tho'. The scenery,mountains ,ocean & islands is stunning. Tofino is a laid back place.

Visiting again for the second time, I always remembered this hostel as one of the best I've stayed in around the world - it still is. Comfortable beds, great clean facilities and a real communal atmosphere. The view over the bay and Lone Cone Mountain is truly relaxing - nothing beats unwinding in the lounge after a full day exploring...

Clean, bright and well priced accommodations in Tofino...leaves you cash to spend on all the wonderful activities instead! Great location with amazing views from the main room. Quiet time after 11pm means a restful sleep. Large kitchen with lots of tools to prepare your meals. Highly recommend to those on a budget!

I stayed here as part of a tour group on a recent trip to Tofino. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful! The facilities, kitchen, common area, a sauna! were well maintained. The views from the common area across the harbour were amazing! I could have spent the whole evening just watching the water and the mountains. The rooms...

I love love love this hostel. It is gorgeous, clean, has a huge kitchen and the best staff ever and super sexy. I believe they have new management. On Friday nights in the summer they had random live music bands which was so cool. I stay here every time.
